What is the process for Invisalign at J&R Dental, Ruislip?
At your free consultation we will talk you through the benefits of Invisalign and examine your teeth.
Once you’re ready to go ahead with Invisalign treatment, we will take photos and digital images of your teeth.
These images form the basis of your treatment. They will be used to make your custom made Invisalign aligners and to provide a virtual 3D treatment plan which shows the series of movements that your teeth are projected to go through.
A key benefit of Invisalign is that you can see how your teeth will move and how they will look once they reach their final position before you even begin your treatment.
Once your custom made aligners have been made and are ready to wear, you will be invited back to J&R Dental in Ruislip where we will show you how to fit your Invisalign aligners in your mouth, how to remove them and how to keep them clean.
You will be given several aligners upfront. You must wear the first aligner in the series for a week or two before you change it to the next set of aligners, gradually working your way through all the aligners in this fashion until your teeth have reached their final position.
For the treatment to work, you must wear your Invisalign aligners for a minimum of 20 – 22 hours a day. We suggest that you only remove your braces to eat, drink and brush your teeth.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Patients from Ickenham, Uxbridge, Pinner, Northwood, Harrow, Ruislip and throughout London are choosing Invisalign because:
- Invisalign is extremely discreet with most people not realising that you are having your teeth straightened
- You can remove your Invisalign braces to eat, drink and brush your teeth which makes them more hygienic. There’s no chance of food getting trapped in these braces
- Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic problems from mild through to complex cases and can treat crooked, overcrowded or gappy teeth plus some bite problems
- Unlike traditional braces, you won’t need to regularly visit your orthodontist to have your braces adjusted. Instead, you will be given your aligners upfront and check in occasionally to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is going according to plan
- Invisalign is made of plastic which makes them comfortable to wear and won’t irritate your mouth and gums
Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign
Why do I need to take my Invisalign aligners out to eat and drink?
Invisalign is made of a thin, clear plastic. If you eat with your braces in, then you risk chewing through them. If you consume dark-coloured food or drinks whilst wearing Invisalign, you will stain the aligners which will look unsightly as well as be unhygienic. We suggest that you only drink cold water whilst wearing your Invisalign.
How long will it take for Invisalign to straighten my teeth?
This will be different for each patient. It will depend upon the complexity of your case and will depend upon which Invisalign treatment you are having. For minor orthodontic cases, Invisalign may take as little as 3 or 6 months of treatment. For more severe orthodontic cases, it may take between 12 and 18 months of Invisalign treatment.
What should and shouldn’t I do whilst wearing Invisalign?
You should wear your Invisalign aligners for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours a day. Make sure you clean your aligners every time you brush your teeth, simply brush your Invisalign aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
Please only drink cold water whilst wearing Invisalign, take your braces out to eat or drink anything else.
Don’t chew gum or smoke whilst wearing your aligners.
